The match starts at 2:30 PM local time (12:00 AM IST – Next Day) (6:30 PM GMT). This match can be streamed live on Fan code.


The Sulphur City Stars have been doing a poor job in the tournament, losing both their opening games by a huge margin. Their confidence has taken a back seat and are desperate to find the right combination. They got a good five days without cricket to think through their situations and now, they lock horns with an in-form unit in the Mon Repos Stars. The Repos Stars barely had one little hiccup in the tournament which resulted in a defeat, but overall, they have been a fantastic unit. This game could earn them their third win if things pan out as per expectations.
